Frequently Asked Question
Conditions for sponsoring husband and children
Q: I am an employee in a company with a salary of Dh10,000 plus accommodation, can I sponsor my husband, who is currently in Dubai on a visit visa, and my two sons? In case of visa approval for my family, can we proceed with the visa process here in the country without the need to leave the UAE for changing the visit visa to a resident visa? Can this type of visa be done for two years?

Four categories of women workers can sponsor family
A: The Dubai General Directorate for Residency and Foreigners Affairs requires the following:
1. The wife shall be an engineer, or doctor, or  teacher or a nurse.
2. The basic salary shall be either Dh4,000 or Dh3,000 plus accommodation.

If you work in other than the above listed professions, you shall make a petition to the department to exempt you from this requirement, thus, the said department will decide on this request and pass its resolution of acceptance or rejection. In case of acceptance, the basic salary in this case shall be Dh10,000 or Dh9,000 plus accommodation. Finally in case of the residence visa approval, you can do the new visa process in the UAE and there is no need to leave the country. This visa is issued for one year for husband and two years for children and is renewable. Children will get three years visa if you are working in a free zone or government or semi-government organization.
